    Keep your old engines lubricated.
    By  Red Truck Guy,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Northern Calif.  on  April 23, 2022
    It is great to have a 100% synthetic oil that has the additives for old flat tappet engines. I have 2 collector cars that have there original engines and sometimes sit for a few weeks between drives. When you have 60 to 70 year old engines they need the bet oil to keep them starting and running without bad noises, even on cold starts.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    CANNOT TELL YET
    By  JESSICA,  a  Verified Buyer  from  OTTAWA  on  February 25, 2022
    THIS product comes highly recommended by my motorhome club because it is rated for older engines with flat tappets. I have had my first oil change only a few miles ago on an engine showing 80,000 miles on the odometer So far it is a good product. Oil pressure is high on a 1978 GMC 403 powered motorhome. I have ordered an additional 12 quarts giving me a stock of 16 quarts until my next oil change. IF my engine burns off one quart (which is typical of these engines) I will be able to top it up twice and have sufficient oil on hand for another such oil change and top-up. This should do me for the entire year 2022 and most of 2023! Stay tuned. If there is a problem I will report it however, I doubt I will have anything bad to say.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    High Zinc
    By  Chris,  a  Verified Buyer  from  FL  on  January 30, 2022
    I have a boosted forged LS6 corvette over 700 rwhp and about 820 at the crank. I need the best oil I can get. I trust amsoil products to perform. Years ago, I had an engine with metal fragments in the oil and using a well popular brand, and shortly, it had to be rebuilt. If I would of used amsoil during that time, I believe my engine would of been saved.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
